What an incredible week! We’ve had such a relaxing time at Shippen exploring the beaches, walking along the coastal paths and just sitting enjoying the view. Thank you for having us, we’re already looking forward to next year’s stay.

Our family have been visiting Shippen House for many years and it was great to bring our own kids here this year. We love the convenience of having the beach right on our doorstep and loved the updates to the décor. Shippen House truly is a home from home in the South Hams.
